A couple of days back in the evening saw the inauguration of a unique painting exhibition that encompassed all the elements of art- paintings, music and films.
The exhibition titled ReBORN by Manoj Maurya was open to public amidst colorful inauguration, music launch and screening of the film on ReBORN at Nehru Centre Art Gallery.
When asked about the reason for blending music and film with paintings, artist Manoj Maurya said that I want to connect masses with visual arts and paintings. Music and Films as forms of art easily assimilate within the masses and provide them an opportunity to connect easily to art.
Speaking about ReBORN paintings, Manoj says, “The philosophy of ReBORN has chosen me to decipher its essence to the world through my art. Each painting unfolds secrets of this universal truth.”
The guests present at the gallery were absorbed discovering their interpretations of paintings and interacting with Manoj to decode his thoughts behind the paintings. Dolly Thakore, renowned Indian theatre actress feels, “The evolving of the paintings and their mindset represent highly intellectual strings and a new interactive style of art.” Veteran Actor Suren Rajan who is known for his performances in The Legend of Bhagat Singh (2002), Phas Gaye Re Obama (2010) and Munnabhai M.B.B.S. (2003) was thoroughly enthralled with the paintings and found them deeply intriguing and thought provoking.
The Painting Exhibition is on till 16th June, 2014 at Nehru Centre Art Gallery, Worli, Mumbai.
